Mr DEVINE (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Social Services. Is he aware that the amount of the assistance paid by State Governments to deserted wives for the first six months after desertion varies from State to State? In many States, the payment is substantially lower than the special benefit of £4 2s. 6d. a week paid by the Commonwealth Government in Victoria for the first six months. Will the Government favorably consider paying this special benefit in every State without favouring one to the detriment of the others?
